Jamf Connect Login with Okta Local Password Issues

Carpenter8763

A couple of my users have had an issue where they go to login with their Okta credentials in Jamf Connect login and they are then prompted for their local password to migrate the accounts. The problem is that the local password is always registered as incorrect. This happens even when I reset their local password and then try to sync again. The only work around I have found is to disable Jamf Connect Login on their machines and have them continue to use their local account for now. Reinstalling Jamf Connect Login has not fixed the issue nor has rebuilding my plists.
Any thoughts?

Did you find any resolution for your issues? We are having the same thing basically. When Jamf Connect Login or Sync tries to update the local password it isn't correct. This doesn't happen for every user but probably 50%. Using Jamf Connect Login v. 1.11.4 and Sync 1.4.3 We end up logging in to the computer as a local admin and changing the local password of the user to something simple then it works, but always breaks the keychain so we have to delete that too.

No resolution. We're having to change the filevault password manually in the Terminal with diskutil apfs changePassphrase command.

I created a ticket with Jamf and they assisted with some Extension Attributes that would then be used to initiate a password sync in Jamf Connect Sync. Works much better now. However we are not using FileVault or the most current version of Jamf Connect still on JCS 1.4.3. If you haven't reached out to them yet, it might be worth it. It took about 2 weeks to get to the bottom of it but we finally did.

@erichughes can you share the EAs?

I am uncertain if this will work with Jamf Connect 2.x since the name and domain of the plist has changed. Recommend testing and editing to suit your environment. We have three smart groups based on this, one for Synced, one for Not Synced, and one for if the EA reports nothing. The Not Synced group is scoped to a script for launching Jamf Connect Sync and initiating a password sync to bring the local and Okta password in line. This was all setup with the help of Jamf support the EA and Script were provided by them and not at all written by me.

loggedInUser=$( scutil <<< "show State:/Users/ConsoleUser" | awk '/Name :/ && ! /loginwindow/ { print $3 }' )

if [ "$isCurrent" != "" ];then

        if [ "$isCurrent" == 1 ];then
                echo "<result>Password Synced</result>"
        elif [ "$isCurrent" == 0 ];then
